How to read info from parent window?

3 posts in this topic

As said in another thread I'm working on automating the use of DVD Shrink. Shrink basically works with 3 windows:

1. main window

parent of

2. backup window

parent of

3. encoding window

Now when the encoding window is active, how can I get the title of the main window?

Since my script is done for ppl using several instances of Shrink at once I have to go up from the currently active child window to identify the corresponding parent window. TIA.

If using different drives, main window titles might be?

"DVD Shrink 3.2 - D:\"

"DVD Shrink 3.2 - E:\"

"DVD Shrink 3.2 - F:\"

"DVD Shrink 3.2 - G:\"

and so on.

That's exactly the point, I can't know what the main title is except that it starts with 'DVD Shrink 3.2 -'. After all it's entirely up to the user which drive/dir/DVD title he uses. That's why I need a function to read the title from the exact same parent window. Does it exist in AutoIt?
